[SOLVED] ZFS: Partition X does not start on physical sector boundary

May 18, 2019
fdisk -l


How do I identify which guest is using /dev/zd32 (I already have a suspect) ? And should I readjust the start sector? If yes, how?

there are symlinks in '/dev/<poolname>/vm-<vmid>-disk-<diskid>-partX' in your /dev - just try for each pool:
ls -la /dev/<poolname> | grep zd32

That should give you the link-name and from that you have the VMID

I hope this helps!
This depends on the installer of the OS you installed inside the VM- the partitioning does not happen by proxmox
